Ypsilanti’s Growing Hope is helping communities gain a green thumb with their upcoming workshops. Learn the basics of starting a garden at the Community & School Garden Development Institute, which offers hands-on, highly interactive activities that facilitate the process of unveiling pre-existing resources and encouraging creative solutions to garden start-up and/or revival.
The next Institute starts Thursday, January 21, and meets every Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. through February 18. Workshops fill up quickly, so RSVP by calling 734-786-8401.
Other Growing Hope services include a community and school partner garden survey, a tool lending library, and referrals to helpfullocal retailers and services.
